Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 14:28:22 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159864 +++

This vulnerability involved a complex interaction between a maliciously created
SMIL file and specifically crafted web server caused a heap overflow in the
error message processing for RealText which could have allowed an attacker to
execute arbitrary code on a customer's machine.

They won't.  The RH8 binaries do work however.  I sent an e-mail requesting the
RH8 binaries and asking if we can ship the Real guys a RHEL 3 install disk so
they can build directly against it in the future.
Comment 5 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-06-14 18:16:57 EDT
Built and symlinked as realplayer-10.0.5-0.rhel3.1
